I love seeing people get involved in real estate at a young age. I wish I would have taken my career and investing strategies more seriously when I was younger. People who are still in high school or college always email me, saying they can succeed in real estate as an agent or investor. I try to advise them as much as I can, but now, through a scholarship, I can help them even more. The scholarship is $1,000 and will only be given to students who are attending or will be attending an accredited college. High school seniors and those already in college are encouraged to apply. You do not need pursue a degree in real estate, but those who are already investing in real estate or those who have detailed plans for their real estate investing career will be given special consideration.
How can you qualify for the scholarship?
You must be a student who is or who will be attending an accredited college. The applicant may be a high school senior, undergraduate, or a graduate student. Applicants must apply using their student email address. Current applicants that are already pursuing a real estate career and are attending real estate courses will be given special consideration, but that is not required. Anyone wishing to apply must also provide a 1,000-word essay. This essay will need to outline your short- and long-term goals in the real estate field. There are more details on exactly how to apply on this page:
What kind of student are we looking to give the scholarship to?
One student will win the scholarship each year. The application deadline is December 31. As I mentioned, you’re not required to be in the industry or even to be getting a real estate degree, but this blog is all about real estate. So, we will give special consideration to those who are looking to either make a career in—or invest in—real estate. The essay will be the main way we choose whom the scholarship is awarded to. I want to know how this money will help you and why you feel you deserve it, as well as:
- Your goals and aspirations in life.
- What plan you have made up to this point to reach those goals.
- What you have done so far to reach those goals.
- How your life would be different if you reach those goals.
- How your degree or school of choice will help you reach those goals.
- Any other information that you think will help me understand who you are and why you deserve the scholarship.
How can you help if you work for or with a college or school?
We have reached out to a number of schools to add our scholarship to their resources. Many schools have signed on, but the more people who know about this, the better. So, anyone with ties to a school, whether it be a college or high school, is welcome to link to this page or the scholarship page.
